This streamlined side dish involves only 5 ingredients, but its light flavors are sophisticated. Blanched baby carrots are heated in butter with ginger, take a turn in a few tablespoons of honey, and are sprinkled with a few shakes of salt.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Trim stems of carrots to 1/2 inch. Peel carrots, and wash stem area.

  • Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Salt water, add carrots, and reduce heat. Simmer until carrots are almost tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove carrots from heat, and drain. (Carrots can be prepared earlier in the day to this point.)

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger, and saute, stirring, until transparent, about 2 minutes. Add carrots and honey, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until carrots are glazed. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Larger carrots cut into pieces can be substituted for the baby carrots.

Delicious! I used extra honey and ginger because I love both those ingredients! I used this dish as a side for my capellinni pasta with tomato sauce and it actually went well together. I will definitely use this recipe again! Merci!

I've made this side dish for the family for the last three thanksgivings using either regular carrots and I've also used the little mini bags of carrots you buy for munching and they are always a hit. But when the tiny baby carrots come out at the farmers market in the late spring and early summer, watch out, this simple little recipe rocks !
